Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/6/2015, Location: Europe

Lloyd’s Register Consulting completes prime safety work packages for Aibel on the Vette front end engineering and design contract for the Sevan-type cylindrical FPSO.

Onshore and offshore, oil and gas producers face increasingly complex challenges in the exploration and development of energy resources. Successful execution must consider many variables from safety, technical and financial, to environmental, regulatory, logistics and culture.

The safety contracts provided by Lloyd’s Register Consulting for Aibel cover quantitative risk assessments, human factors, LOPA (layers of protection analysis), SIL (functional safety), emergency preparedness, additional computational fluid dynamic studies, and flare studies using simulators to assess the flow dynamics of oil, gas and water in pipes and process equipment.

Project manager for the quantitative risk assessments at Lloyd’s Register Consulting, Ingeborg Skjelkvale Ligaarden, said: “Highly competent teams have been established for these work packages and our cooperation between project teams is extensive.” Ligaarden highlighted: “Through our multi-discipline capability we are able to deliver high-value advice and quality safety expertise providing a competitive solution to the client’s project.”

Experts from Lloyd’s Register Consulting’s Trondheim, Sandvika and Kjeller offices were deployed on the project.

Ligaarden identified that a project of this type requires innovation and creativity, and the passion to deliver. “We have these attributes, combined with a proven track record of helping our customers provide safe upstream project delivery.”

The Vette FPSO is a Sevan type FPSO that will be owned and operated by Teekay Petrojarl and leased to Premier Oil Norway for use on the Vette (previously known as “Bream”) field located in the Norwegian part of the North Sea. The hull and FPSO concept is provided by Sevan Marine.

Vette is an oil field located 55km northwest of the Yme field. The field was awarded to Premier and partners in the 2006 APA licensing round, having originally been discovered in the 1970s. The discovery was successfully appraised during 2009. Premier is operator of the field with 50 per cent interest in the Vette project with Kufpec Norge 30 per cent and Tullow Oil Norge 20 per cent equity.

Production start up is estimated 2019.
